We have some fun, new Goatfish-themed t-shirts available. There are a variety of different character options, shirt colors, and fits for children and adults. You can see them all at our new online store: goatmyheart.com. Sound off in the comments if your favorite character is not represented and we’ll work on adding additional options.
Happy Thanksgiving to everyone! All of us here at Goatfish HQ are thankful for friends and family and all of you who helped us make Goatfish a reality by backing us on Kickstarter and buying the game at retail.

I had the opportunity to join a Geeks of Cascadia podcast with Steve and Paul to talk about Goatfish. We played a round and talked about the game design process and game design community here in the PNW. Great guys and a lot of fun to hang out with. They think Goatfish is going to be huge, I hope they are right! You can grab their podcasts from one of these links:
4 days, 26 hrs of playtesting, 100 feedback forms, innumerable goat screams. We had a great time at PAX West - Seattle huge thanks to everyone who stopped by to play Goatfish and thank you to Playtest Northwest for helping make it possible! In case you are wondering, yes, I read through all of the feedback forms! Some great ideas in there and we are working to accommodate as many of the tweaks as possible.
Dragonflight was great last weekend but before we can catch our breath it is time to hit PAX West! Come see Goatfish in the tabletop gaming area Sept. 1 - 4, we have the following demo hours:
- Friday 4-10PM
- Saturday 2-8PM
- Sunday 2-8PM
- Monday 10AM-4PM
Hope to see you there.
We are attending Dragonflight this weekend and Goatfish will be available for play in the PlaytestNW area on Saturday 3-9PM and Sunday 9AM-5PM. Please stop by and play a round with us if you are at the show! Hope to see you there.
Today we are looking at the Boer goat, a stout South African goat breed. We were inspired by the goat's poise and powerful build and thought it would be a fun addition to Goatfish. The goat's commanding build reminded us of our friends over at Northwest Strength and Performance, an amazing group of people who train not only for physical strength but cultivate strength of mind and character.
In honor of these traits, we gave the Boer goat the special ability of "Immunity to Chaos + Steal actions" when they are in a herd. This makes them one of the most valuable goat herds in the game and protects them from the likes of another South African favorite, the troublesome honey badger.
We placed the Boer goat in a gym setting to support the necessary clangin' & bangin' for that imposing physique.
Stay tuned for an update on upcoming conventions where you can play Goatfish. Be well!
On August 31 we will award a $50 Amazon gift card to one lucky newsletter subscriber. If you haven't joined yet, now is the time! If you are already on the list, head on over to Facebook and share our announcement post for an extra entry. Best of luck to everyone!

If you can make either event please stop by to say hello and play a game of Goatfish!
In preparation for the expo I modified one of our table cutouts to provide more information about the game. I made a short time lapse video of the work, just for fun, please check it out:
We hope to see some of you this weekend. Stay tuned for a report on our experience at ETX, we can't wait!
Hello everyone, please check out our latest Goatfish video. This new video teaches the simple rules of Goatfish by walking through an example game round. I hope you enjoy it!
Just sharing a fun animation of the Goatfish logo.
We had a blast at PDXAGE in Portland! It was our first tabletop gaming expo and we had loads of fun playing Goatfish with a bunch of great people. Huge thanks to everyone who stopped by and shared a game (and sometimes two or three) with us. We couldn’t have asked for a better group of people.
We are really excited about our next expo, the Evergreen Tabletop Expo (ETX) in Seattle June 3-4.
Please look for us at ETX and stop by for a game!
